On Saturday, the Frances Perkins Center sponsored a conference called “The New New Deal: Building an Economy That Works for All of Us.” While, in a week or two, we’ll be releasing a report detailing the discussions and suggestions that came out of the conference, here are a few pictures. The conference was supported by grants from the Maine Department of Labor, the Women’s & Gender Studies Program at the University of Southern Maine, and Maine Initiatives: A Fund for Change.
